== Bugs, Issues & Feature Requests

This extension can dim pages on virtually all websites. However, one site where page dimming does not work is Google Chrome Extensions https://chrome.google.com/extensions (i.e. THIS PAGE) due to some obscure Javascript on the page, which I have yet to figure out. Do let me know if you have come across other sites that refuse to be dimmed out!
